Nathan Short, Chair

Nathan is a 20 year old Theatre major, Leadership minor from Paola, KS. A transfer student from Johnson County Community College, Nathan picked ESU because on his first campus visit he felt "taken care of. I scheduled my visit two days before I showed up and they made sure I left with every question I had answered." Nathan joined Union Activities Council at the beginning of his sophomore year. "I joined because it caught my attention. I wanted to be a part of something bigger than myself." Nathan urges people to "JOIN UAC. It's literally changed my life and the lives of so many others." Nathan wants people to know that he is a championship winning beatboxer, loves to laugh and is related to Chuck Norris.



Jessica Shadoin, Vice Chair

Jessica is a sophomore Pre-Physical Therapy major from Haven, Kansas. She originally chose Emporia because she "Was originally going into education--and still might. Not only that, but I really liked the size and the distance from home." Jess has been a part of Union Activities Council since she started school and served on the Live Music committee. She encourages people who are interested in joining to "Go for it! It's a great way to meet a ton of awesome people. It gives you an opportunity to break out of your shell and get out of your comfort zone--it did for me." She also answers to the nickname RoboCop and claims to be one of the most competitive people you'll ever meet.
